Dear parents, firstly, we deeply apologise that the update was not published yesterday due to some system error. Here is the 2 day update:

After breakfast and freshening up, they left for streamwalking & low ropes course for one group & Tyrolean Traverse & Friendship Ladder for the other groups. The 3 groups that had stayed behind had enjoyed camp fun games in the evening & started their morning with Chota Hazari where they powered up for the day. After breakfast, they had gone to learn camping skills & post lunch, set out for their turn at the nightout! The 2 groups on camp enjoyed Mad Ads game in the evening.

Kids reached campus in two batches yesterday - 1st group at 6.50pm & 2nd group at 8pm. We hope all of you had got our smses. Kids had their dinner & campus briefing and without much ado, went to sleep by 9.45pm so that they could rest & recover for the days ahead. They woke up this morning very energetic and ready to start the day. After chota hazari and breakfast, they all split into their respective activity groups and went for a short hike followed by expectations sharing. They have now had lunch and will soon leave for their afternoon activity. All kids are fine and weather is pleasant & sunny.
